    Default Power Breathing...

    I was re-reading PTTP and Zatsiorsky recommends doing four sets of ten - fifteen of forced breathing daily? What makes the diaphragm and other intra-abdominal muscles different from every other muscle in the body?

    I will keep it simple:
    * These muscle operate primarily under involuntary control
    * They operate 24/7/365

    yes but how does that stop these areas from being quickly overtrained from reaching such a high level of resistance everyday?

    I can tell you from experience there is no way you are going to over train by power breathing. I practice kata and throw 3K-6K punches a week. Generally speaking I do a power breath on each movement or punch unless I am practicing a technique called advanced timing which requires natural breathing. I am 51 years old and started doing this when I was 12, so I know it will not hurt you from experience.

    I cannot not give you any scientific reason or explanation, but I can assure you doing a few power breaths each day is not going to over train you in anyway. Sorry I am not a scientific type trainer, I just have a lot of experience and the best instructors in the world, like Pavel.

    I was an aviator and we had this old fashioned machine that tested your ability to do a power breath during our yearly physical. I could break the machine at will, I was asked to not break the machine during my physicals. That is not bullshit by the way. I am just telling you that so you have some faith in practicing breathing. It is the path to power.

    I would however recommend not just practicing the breathing, that to me seems like a waste of time. Shadow box, hit the bag or do kata and practice a power breath. Or simply practice it when you lift if you are not into striking skills.

    [CENTER][SIZE=5][SIZE=2]Think of yourself as a bladed weapon that requires sharpening daily. Remember the finest edge will dull the quickest, so don’t rest on past accomplishments, keep training. As your technique becomes sharper your skills will be more difficult to improve, then you must increase the realism and intensity of your training. To live the martial way one must train their entire lives.[/SIZE][/SIZE][/CENTER]
